The jewel in the crown of the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt Egg Hunt

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt – a London-wide charity initiative in support of Elephant Family and Action for Children – reaches its climax at a spectacular auction banquet to be held on Tuesday 20th March 2012 at London’s historic Royal Courts of Justice. 

Alongside the top 30 designer eggs created by the art world’s most prominent names including Marc Quinn, Sir Peter Blake and Zaha Hadid, Sotheby’s will auction Fabergé’s ‘Le Collier Plume d’Or’ – a magnificent one of a kind emerald and gold pendant, created around a ravishing emerald cabochon of 127.76 carats.

The dazzling centrepiece of this dramatic jewel, timelessly contemporary yet evocative of Romanov splendour, is a rare gemstone of exceptional size, colour and quality, around which curl soft golden feathers, finely chased and set with rubies and diamonds. Designed specifically for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt auction by Fabergé’s Creative Director, Katharina Flohr, the opulent egg-shaped pendant hangs on a fine necklace set with moonstones, emeralds and rose diamonds.

Le Collier Plume d’Or will be on display at the Harrods Fine Jewellery Room from 21st February to 2nd April and at then at the Fabergé London boutique, 14A Grafton Street, Mayfair, from 2nd to 8th April.
